NOAA’s Fisheries Unit Deploys ‘No-Code’ Approach to Project Mgmt

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) fisheries arm has implemented a project management concept enabling the administration's personnel to create resource-processing platforms without prior programming knowledge, FedScoop reported Monday.

NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service partnered with McLean, Va.-based information technology consulting firm M2 Strategy to develop a no-code management system that personnel can use to build dashboards and similar interfaces for managing projects.

The team also created a “prioritization scorecard” and template for resource management operations to support decision-making with project managers, team leaders and chief information officers.

Roy Varghese, CIO of NOAA Fisheries, told the publication that the effort comes as part of his office's goal to ensure that project management can be properly executed by staff that are "not classically trained project managers. When we switched over to 100 percent telework it was, to some extent for us, uneventful because we were prepared,” he noted. “We had our infrastructure ready.”
